  1. I agree, well my instructor agrees. I couldn't hit any 3 wood , without telling me he had me try a club that I hit about 230, it was a Callaway xr 4 wood. I hit it so well haven't looked back.Now I tried and think I will replace my 5 iron with a Epic heavenwood. I like that 80% rule. I struggle with my 5 iron maybe time to pull the trigger.

  2. As we said, this one's a biggie, so PLEASE follow these instructions to the letter. In this thread, tell us: Tim Aurora, Colorado XR16 with a Kuro Kage Black 60 HBP OptiFit Shaft Swing speed 95 distance avg 235 Facebook Tim Carmitchel Android Samsung S7 Edge
  3. This thread may be dead but the latest reviews are out and MGS once again did an outstanding job. Was wondering though if they could add in groupings. Like what the High handicappers liked and why .. What the Mid etc etc. Would be interested in knowing that. As a (now) 15 handicapper I have issues with long woods and Irons going straight... cant be me must be the equipment (lol) But when I tried the Callaway XR irons i found i liked the feel and immediate feedback the clubs gave me to help improve..... did it.. yes (lessons did more of course). But I tried a lot of clubs during my fi
  4. so on a par 4 you would be within 100 yards of green in 2 strokes for a par 4, 3 for a par 5, and 1 for a par 3 Again used on us new players. If you got it you placed a check mark on your card, He then would look at card and try to see if you needed more work in that area. If you were consistently getting this he moved it to 50 yards, he had one guys who was in mid to low 80s that he had on the green, "greens in regulation"
  5. No your definition of Elitism is exactly what I am talking about, its the people, or organizations, or places that feel "by themselves" to be superior. I really am talking about the courses that look down at new players. If you don't believe they are out there you haven't been told while paying that this is a course meant for "established players" maybe I would be better playing somewhere else. And yes that happened an no I left and was told in email that that person was told not to do that but got the same look again next time. IT WAS A CITY COURSE! anyway i could give you a lot more exampl
  6. I took Lessons from Kevin Carlson , he had a great program of 10 weeks for 650 and he guaranteed you would lower game by 10 strokes. His plan was more to have you understand how to play a course, how to work your short game, first year I went from 106 to 91 avg, second year went from 91 to low 80, still haven't broke that elusive 80 but hoping. He had a plan of lessons 3 - 6 people one week , then we would play the next, alternating each week. One of his philosophies was to break the game into 2 parts, 1, Getting withing 100 yards of hole on regulation, and 2. Gettin up and down in 3
  7. I just switched from the Callaway Chrome soft to the Bridgestone E6 Soft. Still think overall the Chromesoft is better but im not good enough to be losing that bal, lol I will give the supersoft and Srixon soft a try but we had a Golf expo and was able to get the new Bridgestone E6 Soft for 20 a box
  8. Great Topic, After a couple years of playing used clubs, my instructor gave me a target . Once I got to that target score he said that it was time to be fitted. I tried everything but found I loved the Callaway XR irons. I hit a couple other good but it all came down to feel and repeatably. So 5 Iron thru Appoach wedge are Callaway XR I also got in the set 2 Hybrids 3 and 4 Callaway XR My driver used to be the Taylormade R1 but got fitted to a Callaway XR 16 with a Kuge shaft. Wedges used to be cleaveland but when I replaced them i got sw 54 and a 60 (rebent to 58) from Callaway P
  9. Great Info What I would love to see or would find useful is a conclusion based on Handicap Great info, What I guess , in equipment, I would love to see; Take your review of the Callaway Fusion Driver..... Its very informative and awesome. What is missing is the breakdown of what each group thought.\ The charts of different users was great and informative. That club is mainly, and I do understand the categories have merged into each other, but mainly a driver for a bit higher Handicapper. So what did that group feel. I love science but science isn't the only thing that makes us bu
  10. Great feedback , thank you. My point on the expensive side of equipment is , yes you can and should buy used at first, but getting info is hard. I decided to get an instructor right of the bat so I was given good info in what to buy. In fact he kept suggesting that I not buy new till I break 100 😀. Then I discussed it with him got fit and still use those clubs the Callaway XR. Point being is yes it's just like buying a used car when your not an educated car enthusiasts.

  11. Okay so I am a relative new player to the game 6 years (started at age 50). I wanted to share my thoughts as a new player and Wife's thoughts as a new player. These are things that I feel are hindering people playing the game. Since this is in equipment I will try to tailor it to equipment. 1. To damn expensive. We all like new and shiny things. But sticker shock of new equipment is real. Now you can buy used and most of us now know where to get this. But its hard just getting into the game of knowing what is good/ bad / crap. 2. Reviews are biased to low handicappers. If its a game
